Work Experience

Are you interested in digital media, technology or the arts? Are you looking for a work experience opportunity that will give you a behind-the-scenes insight into the workings of an organisation that brings all three together? Knowle West Media Centre could be the place for you!

Our main work experience offer is available for Year 10 students during their work experience week, however we do offer a range of options for other ages. Please contact us directly for more details.

What does a typical week look like?

No week at KWMC looks exactly the same, but during a work experience placement you will have the opportunity to learn about:

  • What we do at KWMC: our aims, values and history
  • Animation
  • Photography
  • Laser cutting at KWMC: The Factory
  • Learn how to use Music Software, such as Logic Pro
  • Create your own podcast

As part of a week-long work experience placement we will support you to gain your Arts Award Bronze.

What should I do to apply?

Email Dot Baker on and you will receive an application form. Please fill in the form and either post it or email it back to Dot. Please note that spaces are limited and we aren’t able to accept all applicants.

Why is there an application form?

We use an application form in order to find out a bit more about you and make sure that Knowle West Media Centre is the right fit for your interests.


Please be aware that we get a huge amount of applications per year and only have a very limited amount of spaces
